    I remember the talk about the name for the new NHL team. People asked: “What does a benign, flightless, arctic bird have to do with the Steel City?”

    I believe that my uncle : Frederick Otto Frey was the person who submitted the name “Penguins”. I remember him entering and I think he was the winner. He is now deceased, but can you confirm this for me?

    I believe that my deceased aunt, Anna Kluvo, was one of the persons who submitted the “Penguins” name. Is there any way to find out the list of the 716 persons who also submitted that name?

      My deceased uncle, Fred Frey, was also one of those who submitted the name “Penguins”.

    I’ve been told that my great uncle, Milton Roberts (now deceased), was chosen as the official winner and received 2 season tickets and a color tv as a prize. Not sure if this is true or not but evidently the Penguins sent flowers to his funeral so I thought I would throw that out for what it’s worth… Would be interesting to get an official confirmation. Thanks for the post.
